Hi! Samantha Johnson, QCSW, LICSW. I started into counseling when I was just a youngen’, so now I have 14 years of experience! But don’t worry, I am not too old to understand. I work with people who are suffering. I understand how difficult life can get and want to do anything I can to try to help you find better days. I have worked in ‘discrete addictions programs’ to community mental health and few in between. I have been trained in Gestalt, Motivational Interviewing, Play Therapy, Reality Therapy and CBT. My approach is simple, where are you? And where do you want to be? Then is it just figuring out how to reach those goals.

Anxiety is awful. Most people just do not understand how difficult it is to live with chronic worry, panic attacks, or obsessive thoughts that force ritualistic behavior. Gladly, most people will never have to know how horrible it is to have nagging obsessive thoughts, or fear of panic in public places. The variety of Cognitive-Behavioral Therapies (CBT) like Exposure & Response Prevention (ERP) and Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT) are quite effective in increasing distress tolerance, reducing anxiety, and eliminating the dysfunctional behaviors that accompany it. Most clinicians have full schedules, interns have openings.

I am primarily a cognitive-behavioral therapist, but I incorporate other approaches to provide an individualized plan for recovery. I will help you recognize how thoughts (cognitions) and actions (behaviors) create and maintain patterns in daily living. I combine many aspects of dialectical behavior therapy into my work with clients. This kind of therapy offers specific skills to enhance emotional regulation, develop effective interpersonal relationship skills, and ways to tolerate distress in daily living. I often use psycho-education so you can make informed choices about different ways of thinking, feeling, and acting.

Is your teen often withdrawn, depressed, or angry? Failing at school, acting out at home, causing you sleepless nights? I know it's hard to see your child hurting when they refuse to tell you why. You fear the worst. Parenting was easier when they were small. Kids today are dealing with their feelings in ways that create more problems - self harm, drugs, bullying, sexual pressures are all too common. You're afraid, and I'm here help your child and family deal with the difficult emotions, and unhealthy choices spurred by peer influences or poor judgment. There is hope.

Our mind-body connection is extremely powerful. When we are stressed, we might experience bodily discomfort and/or mental health concerns that cause difficulty functioning in everyday life. This is completely normal! I encourage you to close your eyes and listen for two to three minutes. Do you hear that little voice in your head? It takes awareness and practice to navigate that little voice, that speaks to us 24/7, for it to assist in our healing, growth, and self-regulation.

We will not try to make you do what somebody else wants you to do. We start with your goals & find ways to help you develop the necessary skills. We have found that, if a person's individual wishes are not represented in the solution, it will not work in the long run. So there is a strong emphasis on helping each person take responsibility and control over their own happiness. Some things are better handled individually, and some things are better handled with both people in the room. Our unique blend of individual & couples therapy is quite effective.

The basis of my counseling style is my belief that people are inherently good, and that with support, most people are capable of great change and personal growth. I believe that the relationship between the therapist and client is one of the most important parts of therapy, and I want to provide empathetic, non-judgmental support as my clients navigate the personal challenges they are experiencing. I believe that people usually seek counseling because something is causing them emotional or psychological discomfort or pain, and that counseling can often help determine the cause of that pain and hopefully alleviate it.
